Democrats have been demonizing President Donald Trump ever since he first descended the escalator. Vicious, illogical, and uncalled for. Anything to attack, make him look bad, insinuate, partisanship gone wild. Even the latest attempts to impeach are preposterous. They have tried to blame every death from the Covid-19 epidemic on him, and ignoring the actual errors by mayors and governors.

In the face of a poorly understood pandemic, he sent hospital ships to the major cities, halted traffic from China, and set the “warp-speed” effort to produce vaccines in place, which have successfully produced three different thoroughly-tested vaccines now being administered to front-line workers and then to the rest of us, Look back at the World War I influenza epidemic that killed some 50 million Americans.

Aside from that he has produced a roaring economy, peace in the Middle East with Arab nations establishing embassies in Israel, deciding that talking was perhaps better than shooting. The Democrats may be desperate to impeach him to make sure that he does not come back, but they are making a spectacle of themselves instead. They have tried to blame him for the Capitol intrusion, even somewhat successfully, but he was not responsible for it. It was reportedly planned on Twitter.

Should Democrats succeed in impeaching him, they will become an historical joke. Historians will treat Donald Trump very kindly. His accomplishments are real.

Addendum: I forgot to add that President Trump is the first president since Harry Truman to not get us into a war. A lot of service members and their families should be grateful.

President-Elect Biden will be inaugurated tomorrow. Washington DC is garlanded in American flags, the National Guard is very present. The Governor of Florida is furious that his National Guard Troops had to be “vetted” as if they were some kind of unknown military service from some unknown country. You may have noticed that there’s a remarkable amount of plain old rudeness going around.

President-elect Biden seems unfamiliar with both climate science and with basic economics. He wants to “rejoin” the Paris Climate Accords, which assume that the earth is overheating because of CO2 in the air, and the earth will die promptly if we do not eliminate fossil fuels. The earth is not overheating, it has been far warmer in the past and far cooler as well. Spending billions will make taxpayers poorer, but will not improve the climate at all.

The autistic child from Sweden who had been promoting school strikes there, came over to the United States to lecture the United Nations on the proper actions regarding climate. The Press, of course, loved her and she even got her picture painted on the side of a building in Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco. Money and invitations to speak flowed in, her parents hired someone to advise her on her speeches. Now she has just graduated from high school and is still promoting strikes, and her parents are doing very well financially.

President-elect Biden has issued all sorts of pronouncements about his very first day actions. Very scary. Big “stimulus” payments adding billions to the taxpayer’s debt, which economists say is not a good idea. Wants to naturalize any illegal aliens who were here on January first, and pretty much open the borders. There are already caravans on the way north. Some Central American countries have unfortunate governance, and the people are desperate for something better. Instead of demanding fixes for their own government, they are heading to this country where they hope to find work. Democrats hope to turn them all into Democrat voters.

The ideas of free speech and free people are unsurprisingly unpopular with the “ruling class” of many countries. Ruling classes want control, and we must constantly be watchful to deny them that privilege. Always seems strange that so many fail to understand that very basis essential fact.
